“Luxury”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

This hotel was absolutely amazing !! Our room overlooked the square and was large, bright and cheerful. The whole atmosphere was extremely relaxed, yet professional. Rooms clean and well maintained, large bright bathroom great selection at breakfast - good way to start the day. The staff were reasonably helpful, occassionally needed a bit of persistance, but would happily stay there again - close to trian station, very central to everything and easy to get about. Paradise !!!

Room Tip: Try and have room on top floor overlooking the square

As a hotel it's very nicely decorated and the rooms are large and elegant but don't expect too much from the staff. They're not unfriendly but they don't exactly fall over themselves to get to know you. We stayed three nights and we were bored with the breakfasts by day two - not much of a selection.

But... the location is second to none. The hotel could not be better located right in the centre of the city with everything close at hand. We were on the forth floor (the hotel is located above shops in the square so all of the rooms are high up but go for the highest room you can) and the views across the city were stunning.

If you come in to Florence by train the station is just a 10 minute walk.

Room Tip: Go for rooms on the top floor over looking the square

We stayed at this hotel many years ago, and the ownership has changed, and the hotel has been nicely updated since.
There is now a elevator from the entry well off the street, up several floors to reception.. It may be necessary to climb at a minimum 1 or more steps... If this is an issue for you, be sure to mention it at time of reservation. There are 2 elevators, but I believe each requires climbing at least one or more steps.
We stayed 5 nights, end of April, 2014... Great location which can hardly be beat, right in the heart of all you want to see, and right above a Ferrari Store. Many other snazzy, high end shops in the area offer a real touch of class.
Our room, 320, was very clean, quiet, and off a enclosed atrium, surrounded by windows of other rooms.
Warm Reception upon arrival, comfortable room, with a good sized hanging closet cabinet with drawers, small desk, 1 chair, and very comfortably sized bathroom with shower. Beyond the king?? sized bed, there was also a combo sofa/bed, good for setting a 2nd suitcase, and additional seating...or a 3rd person.
It's strange how a little high window in the bath can be so efficient, a good place for me to set my cosmetics, and offering good natural light.
Breakfast was really nice, a great selection of sliced meats, cheeses, rolls, breads, croissants, cakelike items, yogurts, fresh and canned fruit, hardboiled eggs, and a self serve coffee/cappuccino maker that was a real hit with me. The breakfast staff was excellent, cheerful, and very attentive.
One Mishap.... One morning the water in the shower was steaming hot, and would not adjust. We forgot / didn't report it until that afternoon, but they had an attendant there immediately. It seems that a valve in a neighboring room (possibly over the bidet?) was left in the wrong position, and effected the instant hot water system.
This is a really nice hotel, great location, and even better staff. We WILL stay here again. Again, it's nice, clean, and beautifully staffed.

Room Tip: Room 320 is in a quiet location, see detail in review. Note: Check beforehand if you can not cli...

This hotel was overlooking the piaza de la republica right in the middle of the tourist spots in Florence. The rooms were basic but very clean our sheets were changed three times in five nights. The towels were changed daily. I would return to this hotel. The staff were very pleasant. You have to add on city tax to your bill. In General Florence is a very expensive city.

Room Tip: We had no view we were overlooking the atrium however the room was very quiet rooms with a view coul...

This hotel was located in the most central part of Florence. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms were of an excellent standard. The staff were friendly and helpful and made our visit most enjoyable. I will be recommending this hotel to my family & friends when they visit Florence. Well done Pendini!

A hotel loaded with history, the Pendini was a quiet and comfortable get-away from street activity. Great breakfast. Located on Piazza della Reppublica, the hotel is very (walk) convenient to key attractions including the Galleria dell'Accademia (Statue of David), Piazza della Signoria , Piazza del Duomo. .the Bargello National Museum, and more. A bit of a walk from the train station. If you have much luggage, take a cab.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the Piazza for best view.
